What people are saying…

For me, befriending is an enjoyable, worthwhile and rewarding activity. When meeting with, or speaking to, my Befriendee, we have pleasant conversations and can share common interests, it’s also an opportunity for me to hear her concerns and perhaps offer some support. Over time, we’ve become good friends and look forward to our meetings.
Befriending has also offered me the opportunity to occasionally give assistance with basic IT skills, and in the near future may extend to helping new users of iPads.

Without J, I’d be quite lonely. She’s a good friend I can’t wait to see her again. I’m so happy I found Surrey Heath Age Concern.

I’ve always had a special connection with older people, and it’s no surprise that my husband of 40 years was 19 years older than me! I’ve dedicated my time to various voluntary roles, from running the WRVS shop at Frimley Park Hospital to delivering Meals on Wheels. I’ve also provided transportation for Mental Health Patients to their day centres, clinics and appointments. My involvement with High Cross Church allowed me to become a Pastoral Visitor, where I had the privilege of listening to the remarkable experiences of families older than me. I’m still in touch with one lovely lady from that time. Now, I’m thrilled to be part of SHAC, accompanied by my loyal companion, Izzy, who loves joining me on visits!
